Northern Connector/ SEM Group
As the massive Northern Connector road project moves into full swing opportunities for local businesses and local jobs continue to grow.
Recently a traffic control contract was awarded to Salisbury Earth Movers (S.E.M.) which this will not allow the business to maintain its current workforce but will allow the expansion of their Traffic Control Division with an additional 13 new employees being hired.
Mr. Stephen Fines-Phillips, the General Manager of S.E.M. said ‘due to being awarded the contract for Traffic Management with the Northern Connector project SEM will continue to support local businesses with almost 100% of their supply chain is based in South Australia.
Currently all of S.E.M.’s sub-contractors are local SME’s and 100% of the signs purchased for the traffic control contract at the Northern Connector were manufactured in South Australia.
Salisbury Earth Movers (S.E.M.) is a privately owned South Australian business established in 1976 by Harry and Janice Wauer as a small earthmoving business has developed into a diverse civil engineering contractor specialising in South Australian based constructions projects.
Mr Wauer said “over the past few years S.E.M. have attended numerous Meet the Buyer events which are run by the Office of the Industry Advocate and I would highly recommend businesses to add these events to their calendar as it has enabled us not only to meet key State Government staff responsible for project management and procurement, but also to meet new potential suppliers.”
